Anyone else frustrated with this game? This "real" skating thing just sort of stinks. Yes it's day 2 and I have to still get used to it but wow it sucks.

The whole u have to slow down to shoot thing is dumb. I have literally had open nets passed it to someone who missed the shot.

Face offs are also harder than 12. I went a game 0/21 for Face offs. Passing is blah as well. Checking is once again difficult. Seems like ur opposing team does devastating checks then when u try one its a let down.

Ur team AI is still pretty dumb.

Players seem fragile. Chara got knocked down by Gerbe but when I had Lucic hit Gerbe he shrugged it off. Also Lucic got hit in another game and did a mid air somersault.

eh

*shrug*

only day 2 but still

I find passing much harder. I don't like the new goalie desperation feature either, way unrealistic.

Yeah this game is a lot like FIFA. The first 20-30 games will drive you so crazy that you want to return it, but after that it gets pretty dang fun.

Just the only thing pissing me off is no CPU to CPU trades in GM connect.

Trades are definitely hilarious.

Boston acquired Robidas, Jagr and Ray Whitney for basically nothing.
I traded Dylan Reese for Eddie Lack and Adam Payerl and a 4th for Selanne.

I was offered Iginla for Brent Johnson and a 1st and Daniel Alfredsson for Tyler Kennedy.

Pretty much every skilled veteran is on the tradeblock.

Yeah the real problem with the skating is in EASHL where because of EA's stellar servers () there is already the slightest bit of lag that makes your player feel like he's 50lbs heavier. Now with the new skating it's exponentially worse.

Anyone having problems finding a game in EASHL? Running a team or 4-5 with a goalie and not getting any matches...

I was able to redeem my pre order code from gamestop just now, I'm on Xbox if that makes a difference.

The only real problem I have with gameplay is on an open net rebound, a goalie will dive faster than the puck itself moves..

Can't, make the switch to default, took me about 3-4 to get the controls down strong.

Anyway, I love the game, HUT is awesome, didnt play it much in 12 tho. BE A GM is bad tho, the sim time is crazy, better have something else to do cuz its about 1 1/2 minutes a week, better fix that with a patch if possible, if not then I guess Ill try EASHL. NHL moments live is awesome, so fun, beat the mike smith one on my first try on superstar but hell was it hard ans nervewracking, 1000pucks is worth it tho to start up on HUT.
Gameplay is good if not great, but needs a little more penalties, no biggie tho
Got some problems but im optimistic for a patch

So, in my be a gm, I have discovered that you need a goalie 83 and above to not give up 4 goals a game...the exception somehow being lundqvist...

Needless to say, I am horrified I spent 65 dollars on this.

Hahaha the box is the forecheck indicator. Either that or my game is super glitchy.
